As of 5/23/19, THE TRAIL BEHIND RIVER SPIRIT CASINO IS CLOSED. HIKERS MAY STILL USE THE OLD TRAIL IN FRONT OF THE CASINO. For trail updates, please visit the link here: https://www.riverparks.org/park-trail-updates/ Easy Urban Trail along the Arkansas River This is an urban trail located along the east bank of the Arkansas River as it bends south between Downtown Tulsa, OK and the east side of Jenks, OK. This trail is paved for the entire 11 mile stretch and is open to runners, hikers, bikes, and roller blades. Currently you can hike to the "BRRidge" near 31st street and back on the west bank trail if you want to create a 6.5 mile loop rather than the 11 mile trek all the way. The name "BRRidge" is because the walking path is hung from the bottom of an old railroad bridge. Along the trail you can see the 11th Street bridge which is an existing concrete span bridge that was originally Route 66. Between 61st and 71st street there is an optional singletrak trail that goes through a wooded area. In the winter you can also see bald eagles that fish the Arkansas River and nest in a protected area on the south end of the trail.

Oklahoma summertime. Walk, ride, jog either early in the a.m. or late in the evening and be grateful for a breeze. Plenty of people accessing, but not over-crowded and everyone I passed (or was mostly PASSED BY) was very pleasant and courteous. Paved the whole way with very limited elevation changes. Wonderful river AND city views. Tons of shade along the way as well! I had a very pleasant journey though I was slow and meandering (rode from the Spirit Casino to the 11th St bridge and back = 16 miles). I was passed by nearly half the population of Tulsa that owns bikes.....a few fellows looking like they were in their 80's blew my doors off. I knew I'd set a slow pace.....but apparently if I'd moved any slower, I'd have been passed by road kill?

Great trail for building miles up for more strenuous hiking. Pretty with restrooms and water fountains along the way. Take the scenic route behind the casino to avoid traffic lights. Construction is finished on The Gathering Place around 41st. Nice historical markers along the trail. Southern end can be taken to Hunter Park and beyond on an equally well paved Creek turnpike trail. Bike lanes and pedestrian lanes are now mostly separate along the trail. Patrolled by TPD plainclothes via bike and uniformed by cart.

I stay in Tulsa for work regularly, and this is a decent trail to run. mostly paved and flat, but some good gravel running along parts. plenty of people around, but not too crowded.

i used to live a half of a mile from this trail. its mostly just flat paved trail. perfect for biking and longboarding. however, construction for the gathering place has closed it down from 21st to around 41st.

Love this trail along the river. Lots to see! Can be very crowded on the weekends, which can make it hard to ride at times, but its a nice city trail.

Took an easy ride along the water on a Sunday afternoon. There were a decent amount of people, but no one was in anyone's way. It's a fairly long paved trail. You can spend a good amount of time riding.

Nice trail for walking. Wouldn't call it a hiking trail. Lots of people and bikes.

It was a nice walk. Very pretty and well maintained. But a city park. To me it was more like a nice long stroll down the sidewalk. It was nice, but for someone that likes to get out and hike this wasn't it. It's more of a city stroll with a view.

Tulsa River Parks has come a long way. This is a great area to get out and enjoy great weather and still stay close to all the activities downtown Tulsa now offers. There are plenty of playgrounds and nice pathways for walkers, runners and cyclists. My only concern occurs when taking small kids on walks here. The cyclists travel at a good pace and are always courteous to pedestrians, but the little ones can unintentionally create a wreck. All in all, this is a great family outdoor spot to get away for 15 minutes or the whole day.

4 Wheeling (mud-bogging) @ Chandler Park! O mygosh, I really had a lot of fun. The trails are pretty easy. There are a couple of tricky ones, but usually there was an alternate path next to it. You godown Avery Dr (W), about a 1/2 mile AFTER the Chandler Park entrance and take a R @ A BIG METAL UTILITY POLE, onto a little dirt road. It looks like you are entering a spot that would only allow you to turn around...BUT, then you just follow the dirt road into the wooded area....and shabang,,there you are! I would not suggest going alone, as there are a few spots you can get stuck in. You wind up @ 41st, over by the TCC West Campus. REMEMBER: PLEASE PICK UP ALL YOUR LITTER
